Chanderi silk from India is the result of traditional methods of hand-weaving that have been developed over the centuries, and passed down through generations.

Chanderi silk is considered the fabric of choice for Saris produced for royalty, due to its light-weight quality and intricate designs.

The production of this textile is specific to the town of Chanderi and has been protected by the Indian government as a geographic indication. India has petitioned the World Trade Organization for recognition at the international level as well.

The town of Chanderi is located in the state of Madhya Pradesh in India. This area is located in the middle of the country and is characterized by dense forests.

Chanderi Sarees are produced using three raw materials: cotton, silk thread, and zari. All of these materials are imported from other regions in India, as well as China, Japan, and Korea.

The colors of Chanderi silk come from both natural as well as chemical processes. Currently, chemical dyes are preferred due to their fast-acting quality.
